"Stocked with beauty"

Her beauty held me captive; 

I didn’t want to be freed.

It was like a trance, 

I so desperately wanted to need.

I’ve been here before, 

But, how could this one be different?

I’ll weigh the cost and reach deeply;

To ensure my time, our time, is well spent.

Though, I sense a layer to be penetrated,

She’s worth the time, worth the effort.

A high performing stock, so patiently awaited.
